August 2022 Issue 008

Welcome to August 2022!

As the Summer of 2022 is coming to its end we are reminded that seasons are once again changing! This month we are taking a look at the Value and Importance of the Local Church! My wife Cynthia and I pastored for 35 years in Long Island, New York. We dealt with people with love, gentleness, grace and even strong rebuke as needed. We experienced the joy and victories, along with the frustrations that many leaders are facing today. It is a good reminder that there is Grace In Your Place! The Body of Christ is facing one of our greatest opportunities to Stand Up and let our Message and Voices be heard in every sphere of influence!

** I sincerely hope you will read each of the articles and view the videos that we have included in the August 2022 E-Newsletter.

We have several teaching resources that will be a huge encouragement to you.

ADDITIONALLY we have a variety of other valuable things that we hope you will avail yourself to and enjoy! Like The NEW Favor Confession; Our Survey Question about Using Your Time, Talents & Treasure in the Local Church; 30 Bible Verses on Freedom; This month's Book Recommendation by John Carter; Marry the Vision by Ron Jutze; Our LIVE P&W Album; and Quotes on the Local Church; In addition we share Ways to Host MJB Ministries in Your Church, Conference, Business and City; and We desire your feedback and prayer requests so we can agree with you!
We pray for you each month according to Ephesians 1:15-23 and Ephesians 3:14-21. Never forget that YOU ARE LOVED, FAVORED & BLESSED!
Michael & Cynthia Burns

Who's Child is This? The Importance of Children's Ministry
I believe that children are a gift from God. Their #1 teachers are their Mom's & Dad's. School and Church should be a supplement to what their parents are teaching them. If a school or church is teaching them something that goes against their values as Christian parents then they need to get involved by standing up, speaking up and taking appropriate actions

This Month's We Recommend the Book, THE TRANSFORMED LIFE by Pastor John Carter
Personal transformation requires radical change. It has been said that the only thing you can count on in this world is that nothing stays the same. You can change your address, your job, your wardrobe, your friends—you can even change your name—BUT your life will not transform until you change the way you think. Becoming a Christian ignites the process of transformation. Your relationship with God, eternal destination, and true self become new. Yet even with all these wonderful changes, we are left in a world, remain in a body, and are stuck with a mind that is pretty much the same.
In this book, John Carter will teach you that God has designed a plan of genuine transformation for every person, one that goes far beyond the initial moment of salvation. Whether you realize it or not, you have the capacity and power to influence the direction of your life through a dynamic relationship with Jesus Christ.
Quotes...On the
Local Church

“I have never known the Spirit of God to work where the Lord’s people were divided.”
— Dwight L. Moody

"The life function of [the local church] is to love the God who created it – to care for others out of obedience to Christ, to heal those who hurt, to take away fear, to restore community, to belong to one another, to proclaim the Good News while living it out. The church is the invisible made visible."
― Charles Colson

Andy Stanley

― Nancy Leigh DeMoss

"God has not planned on His children to bounce around from local church to local church. We are blood bought believer's in Christ and have not been designed to be spiritual blood clots in the body of Christ that causes damage every where we go!"
Michael J. Burns, MJB Ministries

― John Stott

Bill Hybels

"Prayer is the Power Plant of the Church!"
― Pastor Kenneth W. Hagin
